Hi, please let us know how we can improve Groups.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. What The Heck Is Going On With The Group Calendar Now?!?!?!

    This happens wayyyyy too often!
    My group relies on the group calendar on almost a daily basis.
    A lot of the members cannot access the calendar and I as the owner am not able to either. This is not the first time that this has happened.
    Why is the calendar so glitchy?
    What a bummer!
    Please fix it so we can view it with no problems.
    I'm about to take my group elsewhere!

  2. Calendar problems

    The calendar sent out a reminder today for a meeting in August 2015. The settings call for 12 days and 3 days before the meeting. Please fix this!

  3. Calender sends out reminders with the incorrect time.

    Every once in a while the calender sends out reminders with the incorrect time. This month our 7:30 meeting was noticed to start at 3:30. The time on the calender is correct, so there is nothing a user can do after the fact to fix this. If this could be fixed it would be great.

  5. It would be great if you could manage RSVPs through your Yahoo! Group.

    It's the only downside to Yahoo! Groups versus Google Groups.

  7. Make the unsubscribe option independent of the mderator

    Once a group has been taken over by spammers there appears to be no way out of the group.

  8. Meeting time came in reminder as Greenwich mean time

    Please do not change the time of an event (meeting) to Greenwich mean time! My calendar has the correct time, why did it change in the meeting reminder message?

  9. Be able to select text in List View

    It would be really helpful if we could list multiple months in List view, and then select and copy the text for use in emails or in other SignUP apps, like Sign Up Genius and Jooners.

  10. Ability to export calendar feed to a website widget

    Specifically we'd like to have events from the Yahoo Groups calendar appear on our WordPress site using a widget called Upcoming Events (or if you can suggest a compatible widget). It seems to be able to accept an iCalendar feed URL, but I can't figure out how to get that information from Yahoo. Can you make the feed available and easy to find in the events section?

  13. Allow a FIXED TIME ZONE

    I have a very local group. I want JUST Pacific Time Zone. I have LOADS of trouble with members who can't get the time zone setting right.
    (Yahoo USED TO let us just set the Calendar times without these zones. I spend a lot of time now helping members get their zone right.
    AND -- Yahoo buries the time zone setting in multiple places.
    AND -- Yahoo doesn't recognize time zone changes right away -- leading to GREAT confusion. I've CHANGED the time zone setting, but my calendar doesn't look any different. WHY?? Why indeed.

  14. Can not edit or delete calendar event

    Many years ago I created a repeating calendar event under an old logon that no longer exists from a discontinued e-mail address. Now that I have a new logon, I can not edit or delete that old calendar event. I get the following message: "Edit" Permissions Not Available. How can I delete the old calendar event from the GCMA Group?

  16. Our calendar reminders are posting with no line spacing. It posts to the group as one large paragraph and not as it's shown on the calendar.

    Please fix the line spacing in the text in the calendar reminders when they post. Text is entered as paragraphs but posts to the group as one long paragraph with no line spacing, which makes for difficult reading for groups members. Thank you!

  18. Events Calendar Notes section - please give control of line change/return

    Events Calendar "Notes" section used to preserve line changes as entered by the creator of the Event posting.

    Mostly, we find the Event Calendar working fairly well now, EXCEPT for this glitch.

    Currently, everything entered into the Notes field is mashed together without regard for line changes ("return" key!) or extra spacing between words.

    This has resulted in members misreading event info to the point of almost arguing about who was supposed to do what. Vertical lists, especially, turn into a mash-up of run-on words.

    ****Please**** at least program the Calendar to respect line changes when entered in the Notes…

  20. Calendar Events not being saved again.

    Again, the calendar feature is having issues. User edits a calendar event. Makes changes, page shows changes after change but database is not updated. Leave calendar and return to an edited event and it has reverted to the unedited event.
